CYP hosted the Women’s International Day in Hopevale on 8th March 2018.
The theme this year is PressforProgress around women empowerment and gender equality. Our day was filled with Joanne doing a great job at being our MC, Karen doing welcome to country, skit being performed, guest speakers and a Q&A panel facilitated by Priscilla Gibson which paved ways for discussions around women’s issues, current situations and what ideas had for future empowerment.
We also had the pleasure of the school captains Tykeerah Cobus and Casiarna Bowen give a speech as the future leaders of Hopevale and the CYAAA band play. Great day enjoyed by all!!
